Yanagawa River Boat, Yanagawa

(4.3/5 based on 30+ reviews on the web)
See scenes of the old town from the canal that runs through it on Yanagawa River Boat. The traditional wooden boats, steered with a pole by a boatman at the back of the vessel, float slowly around the canal system of the historic castle town. Along the way, you'll take in sights of the trees, traditional Japanese storehouse architecture, and daily life in the town. Watch how the steerers carefully guide the boats and their handful of passengers, with the peaceful, ambling tours lasting around 1 hour and 10 minutes. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Yanagawa holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Yanagawa River Boat and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Use the Yanagawa tourism development companies have had coupons on the net. Just kinda walked from the Yanagawa station bus stop. Well damn there directions are slightly confusing. Less hours gather people to wait up to 30 minutes, but the Boatmen's talk was interesting. Home has free shuttle from your bloom, but some wait their turns.

  • Speaking of Yanagawa's River is now open 5 companies. By different routes and stops. We are selling West Japan Railway "large Prefecture Yanagawa tourism ticket ' was available, so only River Yanagawa tourism development. Departure time to determine that tourists hurry by departure time was different, so the best bet is. Me explain boatman who sang and enjoyed. 12-ride was so cold? It is thought it was warm on the Japanese ship. In addition, drop into a water concession in the Middle, cocoa, alcohol and food you can buy. I bought a sweet ♪ different perspective view from the surface of the water, it was interesting. I thought it was a good experience if you visit Yanagawa
